Introduction

Global business value derived from artificial intelligence (AI) is projected to total $3.8 trillion in 2022.*

AI promises to have a major impact across the economy, but in order to truly understand the potential it holds you first need to understand how the technology works. The Oxford Artificial Intelligence Programme therefore aims to provide you with a sound understanding of the technology: its history, functionality, and capability, as well as the challenges that are inherent in its methods.

The programme also offers you the chance to develop an informed opinion about AI's application as you reflect on its implications and limitations and build a business case for its implementation.

Mattias Holweg

PROFESSOR MATTHIAS HOLWEG

American Standard Companies Professor of Operations Management

Saïd Business School, University of Oxford

Holweg is an industrial engineer by training and is interested in how organisations generate and sustain process improvement practices. His research focuses on the evolution and adaption of process improvement methodologies as they are being applied across manufacturing, service, office and public sector contexts. His award-winning papers on the genealogy of lean production and the evolution of lean thinking philosophy are among the most widely cited works in the field. Together with John Bicheno, he is also co-author of 'The Lean Toolbox', a practitioner guide to lean transformation that has sold more than 100,000 copies across five editions and is available in English, Danish, Swedish and Chinese.

More recently, Holweg has started working on digital operations, and in particular the economics of additive manufacturing (3D printing), in order to determine how to use this set of new technologies to generate competitive advantage. He is particularly interested in identifying the role that digital manufacturing will play in supporting process improvement, reshaping product offerings, and changing the nature of competition. He also leads the Digitally Empowered Enterprise Lab at Oxford Saïd, which brings together the many strands of research within the School related to the digital transformation.
